It was on the solo, Ben could not remember 'Grampa's' words. It was a treat, and suprised me!

As far as the sound set up, it was my two (not 'to') mates who said that. They thought the sound was perfect from 'You to thank' onwards. Each to there own opinion I guess, I think that may have been when Linz and Jared came back on - they may have given a bit of feedback to the sound guys. It depends where you are in the theater in relation to speakers, walls etc.

I didnt think there was any probs with the sound, just my mate thought it was crisper at the lowry, and the other agreed. I was happy anyway.

Might upload a teaser of "Show me your Satan" later

Are you kidding?  tour posters ?? for nine quid???????????????????????? ::)

any way it sounds a lot better than brixton gig in which there was no real audience participation there and only 2 stories, and to hear  a gig without brick !!!! You lucky monkeys!!

Bizzare Christmas Incident? This sucks. :(

Birmingham got Kate and One Down, and Manchester got that. No fair.

Manchester was great....

A different vibe to the other show I went to (Birmingham).

Narcolepsy was awsome.

The Bass was too high in the mix for where I was stood (Front Left) but what the hell it was  a brilliant set and I got to sing "Santa's a big fat f*ck".

Gracie
Army
---
The Ascent Of Stan
Carrying Cathy
Where's Summer B?
One Angry Dwarf

great gig, nice to see lots of banter from ben and a good crowd, nice mix of songs as well, decent variation from what was usually played (eg. london)

hmm... I have some very strong discrepencies with that setlist:

Trusted
Gone
Zak and Sara
Bastard
There's Always Someone Cooler Than You
Jesusland
Still FIghting It
You To Thank
Landed
Annie Waits
Late
(Show Me You're Satan)
Bitches Ain't Shit
------------------------------------------------------ (Ben Solo)
Fred Jones
Don't Change Your Plans ....  improv. (over rythmic crowd clapping) into ...
Bizarre Christmas Incident
Gracie
Army
------------------------------------------------------ (Lindsay and Jared return)
The Ascent Of Stan
Carrying Cathy
One Angry Dwarf
Rockin' the Suburbs
Where's Summer B?
Philosophy
------------------------------------------------------ (ENCORE)
Narcolepsy
Not The Same


I'll guarantee that list is faultless. Michael (Stage Manager) gave me the pre-arranged set list afterwards - most of it was the same but there were one or two swaps / additions.

Would have loved to have met my hero!
